Those enrolled in the National Leadership Council learn and put into practice foundational leadership skills, grow spiritually alongside their friends and develop a love of service to mankind. Though students spend much of the program staying in touch remotely, there are two opportunities for them to come together each year.
What to expect
- You will attend an annual All Class Retreat each winter.
- You will participate in two-week Summer Experiences
- Year 1 – Orientation summer at the A/U Ranches in Colorado
- Year 2 – Adventure expedition within the US
- Year 3 – Service trip abroad
- Year 4 – Internship within the Christian Science community (usually more than 2 weeks)
- The NLC Alumni Initiative offers an optional service trip each summer
